    An odd question I know but I would like to allow someone to access my network so that they can stream music from their iPhone to speakers on an airport express but I don't want them to have access to the internet (or any of the other devices on the network)

    I am running the latest version of mavericks server and have an AirPort Extreme and an airport express providing the wifi network

    Thanks in advance

    Not sure how to do it with AE. But if you used a different router/appliance that supports filtering, you totally can.

    You can do web, email, and application filtering (ie, block certain web sites, remove email attachments automatically that contain spam or not, and block internet access for applications like pandora, bittorrent, real player, etc).

    Yah, I would go right to the router... Not sure what mavericks server is, do you have a local domain set up? You could add them to your domain and restrict them through AD, or right on the router, MAC filtering, or specific device filtering and limit it that way... block all www or http https traffic... (probably a *.* block pattern... depending on your router...)
    You'll have to get your routers info/make/model/serial and look up the manual.
